If the Spinks from fight one met Ali from Spinks two, I think we'd have seen a closer fight. In fight one there is no denying that Spink's stamina and workrate were world class.........he was a real handful with excellent amateur pedigree and some good head movement. He never hit that form again!
I remember reading Mr. T, who had been hired as a bodyguard for Leon, said that he was coked up even on the day of that fight. It was a pathetic performance by Spinks who looked like a shell of the same fighter who outworked Ali just 6 months before.
